"Coming into this school was a very bad idea the instructor Dr.S threw papers at students if they get a answer wrong and he would get mad if your confused and would ask questions he explains things once if you don't get it he would hit you I would always feel and seen threads in this class he even said his said I'm a very angry man and crunched his fist he has anger problems and will continue telling people to never attend this school because nobody in this school seems to care"

"Turn back around Verry bad school they would be fights and bullying in the class the teacher Dr.S doesn't like black, Spanish, Arab or any type of people that don't come from where he comes from would always call out random people in the class and make the class know that person isn't smart"

"Honestly worst school I ever attended the teacher for dental program Dr.S is rasist doesn't like anyone that's not from India and would yell in class if you ask him questions and lhe would lower the classes grade if he doesn't like you told the school all 7 months I was there but they never did anything they just care i about money and when you finish with your classes they don't want to help you find a job and they never pick up the phone"

"Bad experience at Everest I had bad teacher and never recieved my Rda certificate. All that money got nothing and I had to look for my own job they didn't look for it. Also when you need assistant they never help you have to do it on your own. Don't go to Everest"

"Stay away from Everest. All they want is money. I didn't even finish my program because I felt like I was not getting the right education. They still call and ask if I'd like to finish and all they get is an earful. No apologies. They say that they'll help with payments. Ha what a joke. They do not care about anyone. Stay away from this place."

"LAy back down on the couch, unplug that phone out the wall (especially if you already called that number bc they will harrass you until you just cuss someone out)play with ya kids and find a job someone is willing to train you at.(construction is a great place to start for men and women.. men on the field, women in the office, yea i make more doing office work then what I paid $19,000 for nothing for.) If you are looking to further your career, and you have a full time job, and obligations, DO NOT and i repeat DO NOT attend the Norcross GA Campus.When I first came in and spoke to a "career specialist" I explained that I had a new job and i couldn't risk losing it and wanted to make sure my work hours would NOT interfere with my school. The advisor assured me that it would be no problem at all. It was 19,000 just for this program. I didn't get that much help in financial aid because my mom makes too much money, but the thing is.... I haven't spoken to her in six years.. But because I was not 24 they couldn't do just base it off of my income only. I figured that since this was going to get me a great job in a field that I knew i would love. WRONG!! I sent my resume in two weeks after I started to Career Services and didn't get a extern site until one day before my last class. The Career Service Manager told me that the program was not for me because I told her I would not accept a job for $8 an hour after spending all this money to take this class. Why would I do that if I could have just went to McDonalds and not taken out that super expensive loan? I mean come on. And since I worked Mon- Fri 9am-5pm it was a struggle finding anyone I could assist at the hours I was available. I was so pissed that I had made such a big deal about my hours and work and school interference, and they just completely ignored what I was looking for.Then once you pay that money... My rep never talked to me again. lol. She never said hey in the hall or nothing. Once I found my site, the director of my program went to another students site and talked badly about me. What she didn't know is I already knew that doctor and he told me everything she said. What a great way to make everest look like a model citizen school dummy. The only person I loved was my teacher. I was so greatful for her that it had really truely been the only reason I was still in that school. Cause I almost quit a couple times. She made me realize it would only be me I'd be affecting. So I guess my point is, if you have no life, and you can make everest the center of your world and completely bow to every bec and need they have, then this school is for you. If you have a family to support and a job to hold down... this is not going to help you. And FOR SURE do not depend on them to find you a site."
